Struck's presentation will focus on the question of scale as part of an actor-centered approach to transnational history and examine the challenges for periodization and space.
By following actors, spatial configurations should be seen as part of the research agenda and outcome of transnational history. Over the past 15 years different trends have shaped the current state of transnational history, including “new” international history and imperial history, as well as the critique of comparative history. These different trends share the emphasis on connectivity and cross-border interactions.
